Mocha Java Reserve by Bull Run Roasting Review |
  • Bull Run Roasting

    Minneapolis, Minnesota
  • Mocha Java Reserve

Roast: Medium Review Date: January 2010
Origin: Central Yemen; northern Sumatra, Indonesia. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Aroma and flavor display intense, pungent pine and cedar wood with soft hints of earth, cocoa and grapefruit. Balanced acidity, medium to full body. The flavor characteristics are sustained in the long, dry finish.

Notes: This moderately dark-roasted version of the ancient Mocha-Java blend replaces the Java with a particularly distinguished traditionally processed Sumatra ? Blue Batak, combining it with a genuine "Mocha" coffee from Yemen of a particularly respected regional type called Harazi.

Who Should Drink It: A deeply pungent fragrant-wood and earth-toned version of the Mocha-Java blend.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
